A Psycho Killer You Can Trust

Movies: ‘Halloween’

The Big Three Boogeymen of slasher flicks are Jason from the “Friday the 13th” series; Freddy Krueger of “Nightmare on Elm Street”; and Michael Myers of the many, many “Halloween” movies.
I always preferred Michael Myers — the strong, silent type who gets the job done.

Who Was The First Man On the Moon?

Movies: ‘First Man’

Damien Chazelle does not aim only for the moon in “First Man,” his visually thrilling film about Neil Armstrong, the first human to step onto the moon. He has his sights on an Oscar statuette, like the one he did not get for his delightful, romantic, joyful musical confection, “La La Land.”

Lady Gaga Glows in ‘A Star Is Born’

A familiar image: Lady Gaga at the Grammys in a glittering dress, accepting an award. Less familiar: uncertainty in her voice, as she tries vainly to drown out the mumblings of the staggeringly drunk Bradley Cooper next to her by thanking him for being her inspiration, right before he relieves himself on stage.

Second Chance Romance

Movies: ‘Juliet, Naked’

‘Juliet, Naked” is a provocative title, more so than the movie itself. Instead of lots of skin, we get lots of laughs and the seductive charms of adult romance the second time around. It is based on a book by Nick Hornby, one of Britain’s most prolific and successful authors, who has written often about music (“High Fidelity”) and family (“About a Boy”) and connections across cultural divides (“Brooklyn”).

More Moore

Movies: ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’

A wise man once said: “It’s hard to believe our luck has gotten this bad.” Michael Moore’s latest documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9” reflects that perspective. Moore has gone to great lengths to show us where we are, and inspire us into action.
Going? Prepare for an engaging barrage of juxtaposed offerings. Expect entertainment, sorrow and the minor delights of vindication. Divorce yourself from the need for clarity. You’ll be glad you did.

Gal Pal Movie With Some Twists

Movie: ‘A Simple Favor’

You remember “Bridesmaids,” the raunchy, female-friendship comedy directed by Paul Feig that made Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig stars. Now Feig is back with a story of two women from different social and economic lives suddenly meeting and bonding before the movie spirals out of control in a hasty, over-the-top ending.

New Film Discredits Conversion Therapy

Movies

You may remember Chloë Grace Moretz from “Hit-Girl” or, more recently, “Hugo” or “Clouds of Sils Maria.” She makes movies nonstop, sometimes three or four a year: over 50 since she was seven. But her performance in “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” is a revelation.

The Worst Films Ever Made

Schlock and Awful

Amazon Prime is a wonderful service that allows the subscriber to find quite easily all sorts of things – including some of the worst films ever made.
It’s magical!
Drop everything and find “Naked As Nature Intended,” a 1961 nudist film by the immortal Harrison Marks.
It has cows, ducks, Stonehenge, girls in Capri pants and the Famous Lorna Doone coach.
Personally, seeing Pam, Jackie and the gang encounter the Famous Lorna Doone coach is a real highlight of my career as an important and influential film critic.
